Make a holiday apartment in Arganzuela your home away from home

Holidaymakers looking for a relaxing holiday destination and a place to escape to for a while should look into renting a holiday flat in Arganzuela. Being one of Madrid’s most popular neighbourhoods, Arganzuela attracts many travellers every year. It is warm and inviting and the best place to take a break. Holiday apartments in Arganzuela are eagerly sought after for either renting or buying purposes. Those lucky enough could even get their hands on a stylish Arganzuela apartment near the Royal Palace and the Basilica. Other attractions in Arganzuela include the Palos de la Frontera Metro Station, Museo del Ferrocarril and the Delicias Metro Station. If that isn’t enough to entice tourists to make this neighbourhood their second home, then maybe its vibrant atmosphere and friendly people will.

Things to do

-Arganzuela Park: The Arganzuela Park is three times as big as the old park that was built in the 1960s. Most of the park’s space consists of pedestrian and cycling routes; there are also five recreational areas in the park. The main attraction, however, is the water. There are three water bodies in the park; the first is a shallow pool which people can lie in and cool off in on a hot summer’s day; the second features a number of jets of water rising to different heights; the third one is a pool with clouds of spray. There are also lawns with sun loungers and chairs where visitors can sunbathe.

-Sightseeing: It is impossible for those staying in Arganzuela holiday homes to get bored as there is a lot to see here. Tourists can visit the famous ‘La Fuenticilla’, also known as the Little Fountain. It was built in 1816 by Alfonso Rodriguez as a symbol to honour king Fernando VII when he returned from his exile in France. It was popular for its clean water in the past and many people used to gather around it to fetch water from it. It is located at the square of Calle de Toledo. There is also the Arganzuela footbridge located in the Arganzuela Park. It is used by both pedestrians and cyclists to get from one side of the park to the other.

-Museo del Ferrocarril de Madrid: The Madrid Railway Museum is worth visiting for those curious about the transport and its origins. Visitors to the station will get to see many different machines – from both the past and the present – and appreciate how much travelling conditions have improved over the years. In the museum, there are many exhibition rooms showing old station clocks, model railways and railway transportation, where significant parts of the station, such as the track, are explained in more detail. There is also a small cafeteria in the museum installed in a 1930s restaurant coach where you can grab something to eat during your visit.

-Arganzuela Market: From the 3rd to the 8th of December, the Sala de Terneras of the Council of Arganzuela and the surrounding area are converted to a market square. This market square will take tourists all the way back to the 17th century – the time of the Spanish Golden Age. Apart from being able to buy symbolic products from this period here, they will also be entertained through poetry, period theatre acts, swordsmen, juggling and acting; there will also be story-telling and crossbow competitions for the children. Tourists planning to visit Madrid later in the year will have the chance to experience this annual treat.

Weather in Arganzuela

For those who cannot stand the scorching summer heat, then the best time to book an Arganzuela holiday rental is during the spring and early autumn. The days are longer then and the temperatures are warm, lying between 20 °C and 25 °C.

We found this apartment to be in a perfect location for our needs everything was within a thirty minute walk so no need for us to use the metro. We were warmly greeted by Carmen and Manual and they provided us with all the information regarding how to use the facilities within the apartment, if any had been forgotten they provide a comprehensive users guide left on a shelf with loads of guide books/information regarding the sites of Madrid. They provided us with lots of local recommendations on things to do, places to see, restaurants /bars to go too and general local knowledge which we found very helpful. The Apartment is on the top floor of a historic building but decorated in a modern way. The facilities are clean and are in good condition and the kitchenware is plentiful and of good quality. The air conditioning is excellent and runs quickly and quietly cooling down the apartment after a long busy day sight seeing. The Wifi internet was quick and no problems with drop outs or buffering issues like you get when staying in some of the hotels in Spain! Overall we had a fantastic experience and have no problem recommending this apartment and the owners. Thank you Carmen and Manual
